This was the last week of doing the September savings Challenge. My husband gets paid weekly on Fridays so I am not counting the last two days of the month.
Week 4 ending balance was $33.73 out of $200.00
Groceries $ 37.76
Dining out $11.39
Gift $ 12.10 - fleece material for son's blanket
School Dance $5.00 - entry fee for daughter.
I ended up being able to put $400 in our Christmas fund. I learned a lot this month. I had gotten in a bad habit of using my debit card for purchases instead of paying cash. This helped me break that habit. Tracking everything also let me see where my money is going.
Groceries : $ 305.25
Dining out $ 47.71
Gift : $12.10
I don't think we did too bad for the month. I need to make my menu plan or next week.
Have a good weekend.
